How to set business hours in the live chat

In this article, we explain how to let your customers know when your team is working.

Business hours feature in the live chat is a necessity.

Remember: if you set up business hours in the live chat and the leads that contact you for the first time within off hours, will have to be reached out later. Make sure you require an email address from them to start a conversation, so this way even if you reply later, your message will be delivered to the leads' email address as well.
